I am so stoked to be partnering with my Soul Sister, Payton, founder and owner of Crowned by Divinity. This girl started out with a vision and a sketchbook and got to it. Every design is freehanded by Payton, then printed onto the shirts. Each shirt has a meaning and a message that Payton wants every girl out their to hear and believe in...
"I Am Worthy & Enough"
"Joyfully, Fearfully, Wonderfully Redeemed"
"Beauty in Brokenness"
As women, we fight a daily battle against the world. People saying you're not capable, society saying you're not beautiful, and your own self, saying you're not enough.
Let's just get real here, please? Being a girl shouldn't be so hard! We're supposed to be God's little princesses for goodness sake! But after living a life where very few people treat you how you deserve to be treated, we start believing that we don't deserve much better. We lose sight of our value... and that is such a sad thing.
This is what Crowned by Divinity is all about, reminding women of their worth, and I could not be more proud to wholeheartedly support this cause. By purchasing a t-shirt from Crowned by Divinity, the proceeds go towards supporting the Homeless Ministry Payton hopes to keep growing.
About two years ago, when Payton moved from Alabama to Washington for school, God rocked her world and showed her a whole new side of life. Growing up in a small town, she had never witnessed homelessness like it is in Seattle. Seeing an epidemic such as this really pulled at her heart, and made her rethink what she wanted for her life. She started going to Seattle with bags of snacks, waters, and bible verses packed up together and would pass them out to those in need. Through this process, God gave her a vision and so her t-shirt designs began. This fearless, southern, spunky entrepreneur left school to figure out what God wanted her to do, she was patient and faithful, and two years later, she is now living in Kirkland, attending her dream ministry school as an intern at City Church.
When you listen to that still small voice, and are faithful through the ups and downs, God has a way of making things all fall into place. I love Payton's story, and I have loved walking through this journey with her. If she hadn't listened to God by taking that leap of faith to leave Alabama, her and I would have never met.
Earlier this week, Payton and I decided to do a giveaway on Instagram. Congratulations to @simplyivy15 for winning! Thank you to all those who entered, there will be more giveaways for other posts in the near future so keep up with me on social media.
So ladies, lets support this message and spread the word to other women in our lives, God knows we need the encouragement and reminder. Head on over to the website, Crowned by Divinity, and check out the shirts. Be sure to keep up with Payton on Instagram as she plans to continuously release new designs! AND... remember, you are worthy and enough.
